This is a “must read” for any REED employee who has been injured while working overseas.

“Truth is always strange, stranger than fiction.”

– Lord Byron



Working for REED

If you work for REED Mission Critical Support Services you are probably one of the many REED employees that “has completed 9,300 personal security missions”, successfully transported more than 16,900 clients over a distance of 3 million miles and are “located in remote, third world, multi-cultural and high-risk geographical environments”. This means that there are very real hazards and dangers that constantly surround you when you’re doing your daily work.

REED even admits that they have “encountered numerous insurgent attacks” and while they have “100% client safety record” there’s nothing about their employee safety record. The potential for you getting hurt while working overseas for REED is very real. But that’s why the Defense Base Act exists to protect the rights of overseas civilian workers that get injured on the job.


Getting DBA Benefits isnt Always Easy

Getting your DBA benefits requires numerous steps that can take a while to process and result in anything. This can be frustrating, especially if you are home and working a job that doesn’t make you the same kind of money you did when you were working for REED. It can be hard enough to get food on the table, not mention all the medical bills your injury is racking up.

I know this. I have been representing these types of cases for 25 years. I know that you have already sacrificed a lot and all you want is to get better and provide for your family. I get it.

It is why I am writing this article in the first place so you can know exactly what to do to make this whole unwanted legal process easier and get your benefits faster. It is also why I wrote my book, “Win Your Defense Base Act Case” and why you can get it here for FREE. This book is the “go-to” guide for every civilian contractor who has been injured while working overseas.

There is also the Turley and Mara website which is full of blog posts, videos, articles and interviews that covers everything you need to know about DBA law system for your case.  

These resources will help you get as prepared as possible for your DBA case.


Win with The Truth

You can win your DBA case with honesty and integrity. In fact, that is the only way you are going to win your DBA case. I’ve seen it time and time again. Upset folks in the same situation as you use their emotions to cloud the truth of their DBA case. They start to exaggerate or falsify details, thinking it will make their cases stronger.

It does not.

The only way you are going to win you DBA case is by the judge believe you and your claim. Which means that telling the truth is going to be your best line of defense. The truth wins. It’s as simple as that.
